Last year, when I toasted in the New Year, it was around 10 p.m., and I was wearing a flowered flannel granny nightgown. It wasn't just because I was a grandmother. I was tired. And it's cold in New Jersey in December. New Year's used to be different. I remember when planning what I was going to wear on New Year's Eve took up all of December, and most of November. New Year's was the time to sparkle, twinkle and shine. New Year's was rhinestones! New Year's Eve, 1948: I was 13.

Whether you're making resolutions or still recovering from New Year's Eve, rejuvenation is the key as you start 2013. For the 200 or so people at the Integratron , it's going to be a mesmerizing “sound bath” of music from crystal bowls at this 38-foot-high geomagnetic dome that's way out there - near Joshua Tree , we mean. Building began in 1954 after George Van Tassell, a former engineer, UFO enthusiast and meditation practitioner, had an encounter, it's said, with aliens from Venus - aliens who revealed to him the secret of using frequencies to energize and regenerate cell structure.

The New Year's Eve party in Las Vegas ended up much more subdued than expected for the city's gaming companies--and a downright sobering event for their stockholders. Visitation to the Strip's big casino-hotels in late December fell far short of expectations, a situation that Wall Street had begun to sense early. Stock prices for the major operators began sliding in November and are still under pressure.

With one week left before a series of city-sponsored millennium festivals, less than half of the 92,000 free tickets for the event at Van Nuys Airport have been snatched up, but city officials believe demand will increase as the events draw near. Many tickets are still available for four other New Year's Eve festivals being hosted by the city as family-friendly, alcohol-free celebrations of the new millennium.

Lisa Sam is a freshman at New York's Hunter College with an interest in anthropology. Usually she also has an interest in cash, but when a desperate Brooklyn baby-sitting client offered her $300 to watch two children on this once-in-a-millennium New Year's Eve, Sam turned her down. "I told them I'd be available at any other time, but I'm going to hang out New Year's with some friends," she said. "My mom thought I was nuts." Not everyone is looking for a New Year's Eve sitter.

In the social hall of the Buena Park Senior Center, a group of seniors has plenty to say about Y2K, the new century and the new millennium. But most acknowledge they will most likely be in bed long before the stroke of midnight. While waiting for her husband to show up for lunch at the center, Madeline Walton, 73, proves that the years haven't affected her humor. "I came over to the U.S. on the Mayflower," says the Canadian native. "OK, would you believe the Titanic?"

Through the Warner Bros. store they trooped Thursday morning, squeezing into a Tweety Bird- and Sylvester-adorned elevator for the ride to the 21st floor. From there, it was another four flights of steep stairs until the TV crews, lugging their 15-pound cameras on their shoulders, reached their goal: a narrow scaffolding high above Times Square.
